Podcasting With A Mask
"It's built a big podcast. I'm David Hooper and I just finished an episode of my other. Podcast read the marketing podcast for experts. It is very similar to this podcast except instead of just podcasting. I'm talking about book publishing. I'm talking about email marketing. I'm talking about the different mediums that you can use to spread your expert message on that episode which by the way is at red like the caller or ED PODCAST DOT COM. I talked about how problems can lead to skill development. The thing that we think is hurting us was going to be an issue is actually what enables us to get done. What needs to be done? We just do it in a different way. We're in the middle of one of those things right now. Some people call it corona virus. And here's something that I've noticed over the last week. That is a huge opportunity for podcasters in the last week outside of taking walks around my neighborhood. I have left my house twice once to get food at the Grocery. Getting a lot of stuff sent me through the mail through ups but about every three weeks right now. I'm making a run to the grocery went. There took my life in my hands to go get some gluten free dairy free cruelty free something or another and earlier today trying to save some lives. I went to donate blood. Both places wore masks. As is the thing right now. Today I'd one made out of a Bandana and a coffee filter. I look like I was about to rob a bank in Dodge city. Something that I noticed in both places this when you are wearing a mask you miss a lot. And they're a couple of ways of this works first of all. You can't hear as well since the sound coming from other people is muffled so you got to work around that you could get closer with. Don't do that now. So the way to get around it talk louder. Also you can't see the subtle cues known as facial expressions that we normally see had a lady today. I thought she was pissed at me. Maybe not I duNNo. I showed up about fifteen minutes early to give blood. She was out there laying down the law about taking appointments and she can only take a few people at a time and I'm just GonNa have to wait their wait outside until she's ready for me. So here's what I said to her. A Ham not mad. I didn't expect to come in. I just got here a little bit early. I know you can't see my expression with the mask on but I'm happy to wait. I was smiling behind that coffee filter in the BANDANNA I was smiling I was glad to be there. Just glad. Get Out of the House and she was really great after that. The point these mask the we're supposed to be wearing and hopefully are wearing are great opportunities for us as podcasters to get clear on the words that we use to get more comfortable about speaking up and sharing our truth right now. These mask giving US permission if you will to over explain things to us more words and maybe as necessary normally you can use different words than you normally would try different things. You can speak louder than you normally would. It's probably less likely to come off his shouting. Because you're not as close to people and also because of that muffled sound in all of these things are going to help your podcasting quick side note about this if you read my book. You've heard me mention this. If you haven't read it big PODCAST DOT com slash book has more information. This is one of the reasons that I recommend that. People with audio only podcast. Podcast like this one that goes in your ears. You don't see me as I'm doing it that when you are recording your audio only podcast. Even if you're doing interviews you do it via audio only. Don't bring in video into something that isn't going to be consumed via video. Because you have these nonverbal cues that you get when you're making that podcast that will not be heard by the people who listened to the audio only version you want to make your podcast as close to the same way as your listeners will consume it so to summarize this. Here's the big opportunity that you as a podcast or can work on right now. You can over explain things you can get more detailed for example you can let people know how you feel rather than just showing them by smiling. They can't see the smile so you can say something like hey no problem. I'm just glad to be out of the house. I'd be happy to sit outside and wait. We call it theater of the mind. They can't see it they can hear it and because of that they're able to visualize it themselves. You can use different words. You can change how you communicate and also you can speak louder.

"He'll get out of dodge Dodd city of gunsmoke fame dodge city is in southwest Kansas. They do still celebrate the old gunsmoke vibe. There is a gun fighters wax museum there in coincident with the Kansas teachers hall of fame, it's an awkward pairing. But you know, they both pay rent. These days dodge city's industrial base is meat packing. And that meatpacking industry has attracted a lot of Hispanic workers. And their families dodge City Kansas has now a majority minority town, it's majority Hispanic, and the reason we ended up spending some time there before the midterm elections. This past year is because Republican elected officials in red state Kansas made some striking decisions when it came to voting in dodge city, which is the largest majority minority community in that entire state. When Laura Kelly the democrat was running for governor in Kansas this past November the Republican candidate. She was up against was named Chris co back. He's known nationally as someone of a national profile in part because he was the head of President Trump's sort of bogus and now disbanded voter fraud commission. Crisco Bach has also made somewhat of a national name for himself in recent years. Trying to sell other states besides Kansas on policies that are designed to make it as hard as possible for likely democratic voters to cast their vote and get it counted. But while he was running for Kansas governor this past November. He was simultaneously serving as the secretary of state in Kansas as the top elections official in that state and under his leadership. It was decided that dodge city, the largest majority minority town in the whole state. It was decided that they would be relieved of their one voting place there. One polling location. There's like thirteen thousand ish registered voters dodge city. They were already in pretty bad shape. In terms of access to the polls before this past election for those thirteen thousand voters there was precisely one voting place in all of dodge city before this last election, but then for the midterms for the November elections in which Chris Kovac was going to be a top of the ballot is the Republican candidate for governor for the midterms. Republican officials in Kansas decided that that one polling place in dodge city was one polling place too many. And so that polling place would be shut they said it was because construction was going to make that one polling place in dodge city inaccessible, so they closed that one voting place for the whole town and instead opened up another one way outside the city limits..

"So that Muller when he gets to the end of his investigation or he gets to the appropriate point. He will be able to cite this document that we can all see that we can all read as precedent in order to make the case for how he wants to release information is we're not used to seeing things in the news and seeing the unsealing of things in that way. But these do you think that's a fair argument? I do think it's a fair. There's also an important legal precedent here. You spoke earlier about grand jury secrecy. And as a former prosecutor, that's obviously something we take very very seriously. But in this case, the federal judge in the district of Columbia said those grand jury secrecy rules, give way to really essentially the Congress's need to know the Congress's need. To have this information as roadmap to a possible impeachment proceeding in this case against president Nixon. And so that also for Bob Muller's important precedent why because it's going to be in the same federal court that Richard Nixon's case ended up in in the district court for the district of Columbia, so factual roadmap and a legal precedent. Chuck, Rosenberg, former senior FBI official and Justice department official really appreciate your time tonight. Chuck, thank you very much closure over your right back. Stay with us.

"The mailbox at the residence of the burglars. Attorney. Page eleven the next morning. The attorney general tells the White House counsel White House chief of staff Nixon's top aide that the burglar quote was no longer a problem page twelve later that day another meeting with the president handily taped by the White House taping system, according to the footnotes we're at that meeting. They discuss what they just did. And they prepare a written report for the president. So that he can deny any involvement in case this ever becomes. No. It's all just their step by step by step everything. The grand jury learned about the president's criminal acts a ready made roadmap to the evidence on which you would base impeachment proceedings against the president. It didn't indict him. They gave this to the congress. So the congress would teach him. Now, this thing has been called the roadmap. Colloquially in legal circles for years. We are just getting to see it for the first time ever today. The reason I say this is not just about Nixon is in part. Because of the reason we're seeing this today the group that sued to release this to unseal this today. They're calling this a roadmap. Not just for Watergate, not just for then. But for now, they're calling this the roadmap for the lower investigation for how the factual findings of the Muller investigation that pertain to the president potentially to the vice president how those things should be reported to congress and to what end, quote, the roadmap is a critical historical precedent for ensuring that the facts uncovered in special counsel, Muller's investigation become public and serve as the basis for whatever ability is necessary. Our democracy depends on it. It is of course, possible that the Muller investigation and the grand jury he's working with. It's totally possible that they will find no wrongdoing whatsoever. That redounds to the president or the vice president. If they do though, of course, Muller could try to bring indictments he could test that possibility or Miller could do a report, maybe a Ken Starr style potboiler report that might be made public or Muller could deliver the findings of the grand jury to congress to form the basis of impeachment proceedings against the president or vice president if the findings of the grand jury the evidence deter uncovered by the grand jury warrants that. And now as of today for the first time in US history. We can see what the historical precedent would be from Muller doing just that. If Muller followed this roadmap from the Watergate era and made this kind of a report to congress, obviously with a Republican congress, presumably we'd never see the report again. With the Democratic Congress. Whole different ballgame. Elections in six days. Joining us now is Chuck Rosenberg. Former US attorney former senior FBI official Chuck thank you for being here tonight much appreciated. My pleasure. Rachel unsealed today. First time in forty four years is the evidence against Nixon that was obtained by the grand jury who was working under the Watergate special prosecutor, they handed that evidence over to congress, and we're seeing it today for the first time. So obviously, this is a great day for history buffs, but. Is this also legally important is this an important legal precedent. We're seeing for the first time today, it's at least an important factual precedent. Rachel you earlier use the word elegant, and it is elegant. It's also incredibly powerful in its simplicity. It's nothing more than fact, and then the evidence that proves the fact and so Bob Muller is looking for a way to present information to congress. He really only has two options the star report, which was fulsome, but also argumentative and conclusively and what Watergate special prosecutor Leon Joe war ski did. Which is what you described earlier is Robert Muller's seeing this document for the first time today the same way that we are. Or is this the sort of thing that senior Justice department officials Neff BI officials would have had access to even though we the public didn't if it was under seal it was under seal. I always feel like Bob molars ten steps ahead of everybody. But on this. We may have seen it at the same time. Rachel, and it would be important him. It doesn't necessarily. Early mean, he has to follow it. But if he's trying to think about a way to frame the evidence for the congress. This is a compelling way to do it the people who sued to release this documents seem to be making a public case that the unsealing of this document, essentially, establishes this precedent..

"It's an integral part of the process sacred as a general matter. But when it comes to the president. It's a different situation. The grand jury who heard all of that evidence about Nixon and his apparent crimes they weren't. Sure. If they could do anything with the evidence of crimes committed by the president. Because what a grand jury does is indict people and cana- president being. This is this is a difficult thing. The way it was resolved in one thousand nine hundred seventy four was elegant the grand jury collated all that evidence that it had gathered about Nixon's alleged crimes enough for an indictment for sure they made clear, but because it was the president what happened was the judge overseeing the grand jury proceedings ruled but the secrecy of the grand jury proceedings terms of all that testimony. They collected all that evidence. They collected about Nixon's crimes the secrecy of that process. Could be broken in one very specific way for this one very specific case her judge's orders. They were cleared. The grand jury was cleared to collate all the evidence. They had collected that might otherwise be used to bring an indictment against the president. They were allowed to put that evidence together in a sealed confidential report and instead of creating an indictment. They were cleared by the judge to send that document over to the judiciary committee in the house for them to do with as they saw fit. It to start the process of impeaching the president to remove him from office, basically here from the grand jury use this information not to put the president on trial in courtroom use it to put on an impeachment trial against him in the congress. The grand jury is allowed to break secrecy in this narrow confidential way to provide that evidence to the only court in which that president will be tried which is impeachment proceedings in congress to potentially remove him. That's what they did. That's what happened. And what they sent over to the judiciary committee from the grand jury. That's why Nixon quit. He knew he was going to be impeached. And he Clint well now today for the first time we've got that report. We've got what the grand jury sent over to congress. You can see the handwritten note at the top filed under seal March first nineteen seventy four and then you see the title in re report and recommendation of grand jury concerning transmission of evidence to the house of representatives quote. The grand jury has heard evidence that regard that it regards us having a material bearing on matters that are within the primary jurisdiction of the house of representatives committee on the judiciary in its present investigation to determine whether sufficient grounds exist for the house of representatives to exercise its constitutional power to impeach Richard m Nixon president of the United States. It is the belief of this grand jury that it should presently defer to the house of representatives and allow the house to determine what action may be warranted at this time by this evidence. And then it just lays out all the evidence in the simplest possible. Terms. And this is like a sixty page fifty sixty page document, you can read it in. You can read it on a coffee break because it.

Ten footnote five point to quote dicta belt recording of the president's recollections of March twenty first nineteen Seventy-three and transcript thereof. Footnote is part of this document, which was just unsealed for the first time. It's from nine hundred seventy four the year that Richard Nixon resigned the presidency, and this document, which we the people are just seeing for the first time ever today. This document is basically the reason why Nixon resigned the presidency, and so the release of this document for the first time, this is a big deal for historians. It's a big deal for anybody interested in Watergate, this is something we've been waiting forty four and a half years to see. But this was also released right now for a reason and with implications that are absolutely positively one hundred percent not about Richard Nixon and that old scandal that ended his presidency. This turns out to be an important new piece of information about the current president. And the question of whether scandal will end his time in office as well. Let me show you what I mean. All right, as you know, forty five years ago this past week was the Saturday night massacre, October nineteen Seventy-three that's when Nixon. Fired the special prosecutor was investigating Watergate that was this guy. Archibald Cox, Nixon fired his way through the upper echelons of the Justice department until someone would finally obey his order to fire the Watergate special prosecutor, but there was such a public outcry about that that soon enough another Watergate special prosecutor was appointed to take his place. His name was Leandra warshafsky. Now, I under Archibald Cox, and then under Leandro risky, there were tons of people who were indicted in the Watergate scandal, dozens of them nearly fifty government officials indited for felony crimes by a grand jury. And then convicted. And a lot of them went to prison. But when it came to president Nixon, there was an issue, the grand jury that indicted, all those other government officials in Watergate turns out they heard a lot of evidence about president Nixon's criminal behavior as well. But could you bring an indictment against a sitting president the way you could for other government officials could you bring criminal charges against the president. I know half of you at home right now saying yes, yes. Of course, you can a president isn't above the law. How how would that work you bring criminal charges against the president? He is rained. What if the president is not granted bail after he's charged? What if he's seen as a flight risk would he still be president from jail while awaiting trial? Would he still be president while he was on trial? If he was convicted at that trial. And he didn't resign would he still be president of the United States as a convict serving a sentence in federal prison? When grand juries collect evidence. That information is secret testimony. They hear the documents. They receive it secret, and it is designed to stay secret forever. Now that information is collected for a reason it's used to determine whether or not a person gets charged with the crime. If it went a person does get charged with a crime. All the stuff. The grand jury did all the evidence they saw the testimony. They took that gets handed over to prosecutors. But then prosecutors have to prove the crimes in open court, the secrecy of what happens before the grand jury itself that is sacred and it is supposed to be permanent..

"Appreciated. MSNBC national political correspondent, Steve Kornacki. You were going to be seeing a lot of him over the next week lucky you all right much more to get to tonight. Stay with us. One of the things that's a little different about this time in the news right now. But this last few days of run up to the shears congressional elections. Is that I don't know if you've noticed or not, but Robert Muller has stopped indicting people. At least he's stopped indicting Americans associated with President Trump. I mean, there was that recent Justice department indictment of a Russian who's allegedly been working as the accountant for Russia's efforts not just in two thousand sixteen but also this year in twenty eighteen to sway our elections through big well organized multimillion dollar Russian interference effort, that's designed to freak Americans out aggravate the divisions among us and shift our political debate and our candidate preferences in ways that the Putin administration would prefer there was that indictment. Right. So Muller in the Justice department are still indicting Russians, and of course, before this election season Muller had already indicted, a whole bunch of Americans associated with President Trump. I mean, when's the last time we headed into a congressional election midway through the first term of a new president while that new president's campaign chair his deputy campaign chair his national security advisor and his longtime personal lawyer were all awaiting. Sentencing on federal felony charges all of them, convicted and or pled guilty, all of them looking at possible prison time all of them cooperating with Robert Muller and the special counsel's office in their ongoing criminal and counterintelligence investigation of the president and his campaign and the crucial question of whether or not it was actually kosher how he got this job in the first place. But even still though, right? Russian still being indicted. I think in part that one may have been time to let us all know that the Russians had been caught working to mess with this election to just like they did with the last one so Russians still being indicted. Okay. And a bunch of the president's men already indicted and convicted and awaiting sentencing from before. But still in the immediate lead up to this election. You know, there's lots of interesting reporting lots of public speculation about what exactly the special counsel's office, and Robert Muller might be up to right now. But in the immediate lead up to this election as sort of expected might happen Muller's publicly observable activity has come to a complete halt. And because of Justice Department's rules and practice around this thing, we'd sort of expected that might happen in the immediate lead up to this election. It's kind of weird though. Right. Feels like an eerie unsettling calm in the middle of a store. Woo happy. We. We. Well tonight fittingly enough on Halloween. We appear to have just taken a big step forward as a country toward understanding what we can expect from Muller as soon as the election is over newly unsealed documents today. New revelations about what we can reasonably expect from Miller as soon as next week's election is over that stories next..

"Chronology, thank you for being here face Rachel, and yeah. And let's take a look at one particular region. We can find interesting governors races around the country, but I won't focus on the region that may Donald Trump president remember election night 2016 two years ago, Pennsylvania had gone for Obama went for Trump Ohio had gone. Obama went for Trump, Michigan, Wisconsin Iowa. All through the rust belt, a Great Lakes states, the mid west, whatever you wanted to call it all of these Obama Trump voters all of these Obama, Trump states the reason Donald Trump became president. So take a look two years later statewide races in just about all these state governors races. What are we seeing there? Take a look at the polling, Pennsylvania. Remember, Donald Trump? First Republican the win this thing since one thousand nine hundred eighty eight wins in twenty sixteen two years later democratic governor he is coasting to reelection. They're in Pennsylvania, Ohio, this one didn't just swing to Trump it. Swung hard to Trump. He won't Ohio by eight points in two thousand sixteen you could see it there. Now, you got Nick and Nick governor's race infect Richard cordray, the democrat there he may be slightly ahead in that race a close one a chance for Democrats to ghetto Michigan, obviously Trump needed. Michigan. Barely got Michigan twenty eighteen the governor's race almost a double digit lead in the average pole for the democrat there. How about Wisconsin again, one of those nine Eighty-four, which was the last time a Republican one Wisconsin before? He got it in two thousand sixteen now Scott Walker new poll out today did even with Tony the democrat running against him, there'd been other polls. In fact, that have even had Iverson ahead in this race Democrats heavy shot to take out Scott Walker in the state to help make Donald Trump president two years ago, Iowa this went to Trump, I almost ten points. Remember Obama won Iowa twice. Trump won it by almost ten points. Now, the Republican acting governor in that state actually behind in a recent poll in Iowa, and we could say Minnesota, not a Trump state almost a Trump state. He get within a point of Hillary Clinton here. But again two years later the governor's race team walls. The congressman running is the democrat he enjoys a healthy lead in the polls there, so you could see Rachel all of those states that flipped from Obama to Trump two years later. There is a change Democrats as I just showed you could pretty much run the table out there and governor's race. See that is fascinating. Thank you for that, especially striking to see it. When you're talking about incumbent Republicans who are still having trouble and some of those States, Great stuff, my friend. Thank you very much much.

"So to the poll, so you can you can call and reserve a seat on a bus like this one or transit van like this one for early voting in town or for election day voting at that polling place way out of town and the county clerk now says she is now planning to offer a second polling place for dot city. Which is news. She's planning to add that maybe in twenty twenty or maybe maybe even by next year. But definitely not for this year. Not this year. Not while crisco box on the ballot. No way L O L. Two thousand eighteen election day is less than a week away. Now, a hearing on the matter in dodge city has been scheduled for tomorrow. In the meantime, we're hoping maybe the Ford county clerk will start returning our calls you ever number. I'll be right back. When you think of red states in which Democrats might be competitive this year, you think of Georgia, right? Maybe Arizona, you don't think of Kansas or Oklahoma or South Dakota. Yeah. Yeah. Actually in those three red states this year democratic candidates for governor are definitely within striking distance of pulling off upsets in South Dakota that bastion of liberalism. The most recent polls show that the democrat and the Republican in the race for governor are tied in Oklahoma and Kansas the governor's races in both of those states are considered tossups right now last night. The great Steve Kornacki was here live with us on set to talk about the chances that Democrats might win control of the house of representatives next week tonight. I've asked to come back to give us a look at who's looking good in the governor's races for next week. Joining us now is Emmerson national political correspondent, Steve Kornacki, Mr..

"New location for voting in the press the county clerk's office and used to be crisco box office. They were defending this as no big deal. Right. No, big change, not something that's really going to change the access to the polls in dodge city at all no reason to worry. We wanted to see for ourselves. So producer. Julia went and found what used to be the polling location in dodge city, and she found what is the new one that they have just moved to. Now, we're showing you what it takes to get from the relatively convenient old center center city place where they used to vote to this new one where they've moved it to this year. We've actually had to speed up this video as you can see for time. But yeah, the new polling location is literally outside the city limits. It's also about a mile from the nearest bus stop. It's in a place where there are no sidewalks, and it isn't a place where there are lots of big rattling trips coming to and from the meatpacking plants. Good luck crossing the street. I remember the reason the county clerk's that they had to move to this totally out of the way off the end of the earth moonscape place that you can't really get to is because that old center city location. Sorry, it's just a disaster. There's construction you can't use it. It's completely inaccessible this year. We keep hearing we keep seeing national reporting on this that there's construction at that site that has made the old site inaccessible. The county's hands are really tied. They definitely could use it had to be some new polling place. Right. That's been the reason given for why dodge city can't vote this year in dodge city where they've always voted. You want to I want to see that site as of this week as of two days ago here it is. Does it look inaccessible to you is it completely blocked off by construction? Mean that's the parking area outside. Do you think that looks completely inaccessible to pedestrians and potential voters? We got there this week. It was totally no big deal to drive up and park anywhere in the Civic Center parking lot to go walk right up to the Civic Center doors Civic Center is right in the center of town easy to get to. They said it would be all blocked off by construction. City the Civic Center, even became sort of home base for our producer on the ground. Hey, everybody. This place is easy to get to. Let's meet at the Civic Center. And you know, there is some construction happening across the street. You can see it in the distance there. But they're not blocking access that can stop not blocking access to the Civic Center at all there's tons of events happening right here at the Civic Center between now and now between now and the election day and even events that are already planned for the Civic Center for after election day. There's a big recycling event, for example happening on Saturday this week a private events scheduled there on Sunday the Sunday before the election..

"Civic Center that polling location that one location serves ten times the number of voters assigned to the average polling place in Kansas on average, Kansas polling places serve about twelve hundred people this one in dodge city serves thirteen thousand registered voters there Alejandro told us this week that he's used to his dad having to wait in line for an hour or two every single time. He votes in every election because everybody else basically has the same plan every election to get off work at end of shift and rushed to the one polling place. The town has to cast your vote. And so it's always big long lines. The situation for voting in dodge City, Kansas has not necessarily been easy, right? Thirteen thousand registered voters all turning up for a single poll in place. But this year for Alejandro first time voting they have taken that one polling place for all of dodge city, and they have moved it out of town. Outside the city the county clerk explained that because of construction at the Civic Center where everybody used to vote this year. Instead that polling place would not be used, and she would move the polling place the single polling place for all dodge city to another location one that is completely outside the city now to the everlasting frustration of local officials the decision to tell dodge city voters that in order to vote this year, they literally needed to get out of dodge that decision hasn't gone over well in the local community, and in the local media, and to be honest. It has not come off as a purely logistical decision. The Ford county clerk announced in late September that she was moving. The polling location out of dodge city within days, the ACLU of Kansas called her up to say, basically, hey, this is a problem. They offered immediately to work with her in order to try to fix it to open more polling locations in dodge city that would be more able to accommodate dodge city voters. Then it emerged that the county clerk had given out the wrong address for the new polling place to hundreds of people who had newly registered to vote for the first time in the county this year, really on top of everything. Amid all of this wrangling and all of these things going going wrong. And what appeared to be a sort of cascade of bad faith, when it comes to running the election for dodge City, Kansas the ACLU tried one last time they reached out to the county clerk to ask. Okay. Given these changes given the confusion, given you handing out the wrong address, can you at least publicize our special voter helpline ahead of the election. Can you at least do that since you're apparently not going to fix this problem with the polling location? The Wichita eagle then reported that when the ACLU of Kansas reached out that way to the Ford county Clark asking her to publicize this vote or helpline for any voters who were confused the Ford county Clark didn't even respond to the she instead forwarded that E mail to the Kansas secretary of state's office saying, quote, this is what I got today from the ACLU L. So it's the top elections official in Ford county, Kansas, which is administering this election in dodge city LOL about voter helpline, am I right? And wonder of wonders the Republican secretary of state in Kansas. Chris Kobuk is also the Republican nominee for governor. So he's at the top of the ticket in the elections, and that's eight this year. He's running for governor after building his career on making it more difficult for people to vote in his state and even in the country, more broadly. He's the one who worked with President Trump to might try to make it harder to vote nationwide. Even crisco balk. When asked about that situation in dodge city..

"So we're going to be talking with the great Steve Kornacki in just a moment about that governor's race in Kansas and a whole bunch of others where the polling right now might surprise you. What is happening in Kansas right now where the governor's race in. The polls is basically tied in Kansas. That is not a solo like, that's that's not like a standalone weird result right now. It turns out there's a whole bunch of states that we think of as red states or strongly red leaning states where Democrats right now stand more than a good chance of winning the governorship. If you haven't been following governors races closely. You will be surprised by how well Democrats are looking in the polls in governor's races, even in pretty conservative state. So we're gonna bring in Steve Kornacki about that in just a second. But first before we do that. I want you to meet someone I want you to meet my new favorite student council. President. How old are you eighteen years old as of today happy right day? How does that feel? It's exhilarating kind of my call last week to ask about my voter, registration, make sure it's going to go through before this whole thing started. And they said it's gonna be on home today. Insult today. So hopefully went through today. Alejandro wrangled Lopez. He's a senior in high school. He's busy kit. He is student council president and his high school, which is awesome. He's also on the debate team. He's also active in local politics in his case. He's a democrat. He's active with the local Democratic Party all the hundred just turned eighteen this week. He works two part time jobs right now to pay for his braces. See he's got braces paying for those himself with two jobs in addition to being student council president and on the debate team. He turned eighteen the day that we actually went to his hometown to meet him this week. For his birthday, one hundred told us that what he would very much like as his birthday present is for his town to make it easier for people to vote because that's what you wish for for your birthday, if you live where he does this year, all Hendro Rangel. Lopez lives in dodge City, Kansas dodge city is a town that grew up along the historic Santa Fe railroad, you probably already know iconic pop culture dodge city, remember that the TV western gunsmoke gunsmoke was set in dodge city when the bad guys would show up and marshal. Matt Dillon wanted the bad guys to hit the road. He would say it like this. Jacqueline. You take Bulow. Then you take the rest of your men. And you get out a Dutch you get out of dodge that saying comes from a real place comes from dodge City, Kansas. It's about two and a half hours. West of Wichita nowadays that people have dodge city are having say that they're happy to tell you that they would love for you to come back. Dob city welcomed you don't go. Don't get out of dodge. Don't go come back over the past. Few decades dodge City, Kansas has changed dramatically in large part because of the opening of two big meat packing plants right in town, those plants and their steady jobs became a real magnet for Hispanic workers in particular. And today sixty percent of the people who live in dodge city are Hispanic city is one of the few places in Kansas for the population is majority minority when when the when white people are not the majority population in the town. Alejandro family is one of those families who moved to dodge city for work. He was born and raised in dodge city. And now he's old enough to have a say in who represents dodge city in our democracy. The son of immigrants and the son of. Two people from lexical Kim, you're in the nineties. We've always instilled in me that. Building is one of the most important rights that you earn from being born here from becoming a US citizen. And when my dad became a US citizen two dozen four. He's voted in every midterm and every presidential election. So that was always an integral part of him. Being an American citizen. For all of all Eoghan rose life eighteen years in a couple of days now. There has been one place in dodge city where you can cast your ballot on election day. Only one the dodge city Civic Center dodge city.

"I'm only home when I have to be in order to save. My Senate seat not supposed to admit that. But that same year twenty four fourteen Senator Roberts had a new reason to be home. I he did have a tough primary challenge that year, which he survived only by single digits, and then when he got to the general election. Senator Pat Roberts was again faced with a challenge from not one but two other candidates who was running against a democrat. But he was also running against an independent and independent named Greg Orman a bit of an outsider. He was a rich guy who entered the race late in the game that year, but he had the doing really well really early at one point. He was pulling ten points ahead of this incumbent Republican Senator Pat Roberts and with that upstart independent candidate doing great in that Kansas Senate race. It's interesting. The democrat in that three way race decided to drop out which left Greg Orman this independent. A clear shot at winning this race. It was him against Pat Roberts. He had a clear shot at unseating longtime Republican Senator Pat Roberts. He coulda done might have done. He definitely had a chance to do it. He did not do it. Greg Orman this independent? He was head to head with Pat Robertson, the end, but he lost to Pat Roberts by ten points on election day, and that in fact helped the national Republican party when a new majority in the US Senate for two thousand fourteen. Well now this year in two thousand eighteen Greg Orman is back and he's in another three way race this time. It's for governor in that state this year, the Republican candidate for governor of Kansas is the Kansas secretary of state, Chris Kobuk who is way way way out there on the right? And he would not mind me saying, so so I don't mean that to cast aspersions. He just is the democratic candidate is a well-known moderate longtime state Senator named Laura Kelly. Now between crisco Bach and Laura Kelly the two of them the race is excruciatingly close the latest polling from Emerson shows. Crisco Bach ahead in that governor's race by one point. A new poll from Ipsos shows the democrat Laura Kelly up by two points in Kansas. I mean, you basically can't fit a penny between the two candidates of the two major parties. But that race has been a little crowded because that guy Greg Orman is also running for governor of Kansas again as an independent and in those same polls that show a one or two point race between the democrat and the Republican there's Greg Orman polling it eight or nine points. Greg Orman from eight or nine points in the polls. He appears to have no chance at all to win or to get anywhere close to winning. But he's definitely pulling more than enough oats to change the outcome of this race. And honestly because Greg Orman is running as a moderate the candidate Ormond seems to be pulling votes. From is the other moderate in the race democrat, Laura Kelly and to win in Kansas. She will need every last vote. She can wrangle now. Greg Orman says he has no intention of bowing out of this. Governor's race. Even though he's only polling at eight or nine percent. He has no intention of quitting. But now someone on his campaign definitely thinks that he should yesterday. The treasurer of the Greg Orman campaign who himself is a Republican former state Senator from Kansas, the treasurer of orlands campaign resigned. So he could endorse the democratic candidate Laura Kelly. He said in a statement released by Kelly's gubernatorial campaign, quote, Laura Kelly is the only viable candidate for governor who can win and bring people together I've been a friend and colleague Greg Orman for several years. I supported is run for Senate in two thousand fourteen and until today I supported his run for governor. However, this is a critical election for Kansas. We cannot risk the future of our state, quote, electing Chris Kobuk, governor is one of the worst things that could happen to our state. That's the campaign treasurer for the potential spoiler independent candidate in Kansas. He himself a former Repub Republican and a former state Senator he saying he has no choice, but to drop out of the campaign for the independent candidate and switch instead to the democrat. He says it's the only way to stop crisco Bach from taking office which again, he says would be one of the worst things that could happen to our state..

"Over the last few days, we've been following this story out of dodge City, Kansas sixty percent of the residents of dodge city are Hispanics, one of the few majority minority towns and the whole state of Kansas about thirteen thousand registered voters in dodge city on election day, those thirteen thousand people have only one place they can go to cast their ballots on average in Kansas. There's about twelve hundred voters per polling place dodge city, they decided to cram all thirteen thousand voters into one polling place. Why not do we mentioned it's a majority minority town now? Well, now this year it's gotten even harder because the local county clerk or Republican has decided to move the single polling place for all of dodge city way outside city limits over a mile from the nearest public bus, stop and across a state highway. On top of that local county Clark has also started sending notices to all the new voters in dodge city, telling them where they have to go if they wanna vote on election day, except those notices from the local Republican county clerk, tell voters that they should go to the old polling location that they're not actually using this year. Instead of the new one way out of town. I mean think about this for a second. They literally only have the one polling location. The job here is to tell people where it is. It's only one place. Screwed that up and send everybody somewhere else. One job. Right. It's like literally your job is to give people via dress. You're like, no one job one place. Come on. The county says it will be sending correct notices now as a follow up. I'm sure that won't be confusing to people at all for the past few weeks. The ACLU of Kansas has been trying to get this local county clerk to agree to open another bowling location for this town to accommodate the thirteen thousand voters who lived there, particularly those who use public transportation today, we learned just how seriously the local county clerk has taking those efforts. The Wichita eagle reporting today that this week, quote when the ACLU reached out to the Ford county cork asking her to please publicise a voter helpline for anybody who is confused about the new requirements for voting in dodge city. The Ford county clerk did not even respond to the ACLU on that she instead forwarded that E mail to the secretary of state's office along with the letters LOL, we should mention that the secretary of state is also a Republican, and although his office is administering this election secretary of state himself is at the top of the ticket and Kansas because he's the Republican. Candidate for governor ACLU of Kansas has been trying to work with Ford county. Clark on this issue for weeks. Now today was apparently the final straw today. The ACLU of Kansas decided to sue the Ford county Clark to try to force that Clark to open another location on November six they're suing on behalf of a young man who will be a first time voter in dodge city high school student who hopes to cast his first ever ballot in his first ever election. He's understandably daunted by all the impediments that have been set up to make that as hard as possible. This first time voter named in this lawsuit tells the Wichita eagle today, quote, I don't hate the Ford county clerk, I don't want anything against her. I just want her to do her job properly. Joining us now is Mike cubic executive director of the ACLU of Kansas. Mr kubik. Thank you very much for.
